Even though we live closer than we ever have now that two of my brothers moved to Chicago, our families don’t get together nearly enough. It’s sad really because growing up I remember spending so much time with extended family, and my parents almost never turned down an invitation to a party. So this past Memorial Day weekend we made the effort to get together at my brother’s place, where we ate some of his famous homemade chicken wings and ordered pizza and let the kids go wild like we used to do. The next morning Adam woke up asking to go back over to see his cousins, and he wanted to do that over anything else I offered to do that day. It is so sweet to see how much the kids love each other and I am going to make a big push to plan more family get togethers this summer!
About the look – when I’m going out and I know I’ll be playing with kids, I always wear flats and really comfortable clothes. This top from Zara is sweet and simple but I love the lace detail – the gladiator style sandals are French Connection from a few years ago but I love how the trend is back and really hot right now. I accessorized with my favorite Ray-Ban’s with the gradient blue lens and a pretty and pink studded Rebecca Minkoff bag.
